    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I'm a total sucker for meta-fic (i.e., a story told in reactions), and if the format is internet- or fandom-based, all the better.
    This story is FANTASTIC, idrilka works magic in several ways, and I'm off to read the second part right now and possibly re-bookmark this as a series because it's just that good.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love Odsbodkins' version of the Barnes family. Becca is a fantastic character, and this is one of the best outsider POV stories (from an minor character's perspective, to boot) that I've read.

    Summary

    While on a mission storming a HYDRA facility, James Buchanan Barnes touches one of the many strange alien devices collected by the Red Skull. He does this, in fact, twice— in the past, and in the future.

    Next thing he knows, Bucky Barnes is opening his eyes in the 21st century, which is full of great gadgets and coffee, and at least includes his old pal Steve. (And, inexplicably, a different Stark.) Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier finds himself in the middle of World War Two, helping Captain America hunt down HYDRA (which is at least familiar), pretending to be Bucky Barnes (which is not), and figuring out the very noisy group of soldiers who call themselves the Howling Commandos.

    I love the Winter Soldier's voice in this. Bucky Barnes, too, but the Soldier is incredible.

    I read this one several times already and still keep finding new layers. It's funny, it's thought-provoking, it's unusual. Favourite.
